    I'm into hiking and will be going soon, but I'll be by myself. I have a smartphone, but like.most of those, the battery cam die quicker. I'll be taking pictures with it too probably do that won't help the battery. I have a separate solar powered charger though. But does anyone hiking use a cheap flip phone as am extra precaution? Because even if it's deactivated and your not paying for any minutes, it can still dial 911 Incase you get hurt and break your smartphone or its dead or you lose it. You could keep a small flip phone on your body easily, even sticking it in your boot. Has anyone used a phone like this while hiking as extra safety Thanks!

  • When is the perfect time to go camping?

    Best answer: For car camping you can go anytime if you are equipped for the weather. For backpacking, I preferred to plan my trips around the full moon to minimize my need for artificial light. I have camped in rain and snow and had a great time. I really hate to break camp in the rain though because I need to set up my... show more

I have camped in rain and snow and had a great time. I really hate to break camp in the rain though because I need to set up my tent and open everything else up so my equipment can dry as soon as I get home. I am not fond of the extra work.

    Best answer: Ever heard of a CPAP machine? Go to your local Home Medical supply - they will rent all sorts of like oxygen tanks, wheel chairs, walkers etc and most sell CPAP machines and accessories. One of these accessories is a stretchy cloth that goes across the top of your head and under your chin to keep your mouth closed when using a CPAP. Not very expensive. Basically anything that looks like the old toothache cartoon and holds your mouth closed will do fine.

  • Have you ever gone camping and it resulted in disaster?

    Best answer: Forty years ago, I did not have much money. I only had cheap gear. A tent with fiberglass poles and no waterproof fabric with a synthetic sleeping bag. I stayed at a campground near the Corn Palace at Mitchell, South Dakota. A very heavy rainstorm blasted throughout the night. My tent was flattened and soaked.... show more
    Best answer: Forty years ago, I did not have much money. I only had cheap gear. A tent with fiberglass poles and no waterproof fabric with a synthetic sleeping bag. I stayed at a campground near the Corn Palace at Mitchell, South Dakota. A very heavy rainstorm blasted throughout the night. My tent was flattened and soaked. I took my sleeping bag to a laundromat for drying. I took a shower in a flea-infested bathroom. I learned to buy high-quality gear, dramatically increasing the number of days that I go camping and providing me comfort on remote wilderness backpacking trips. Spending more than a thousand dollars on gear is worth the benefits: water filter, backpacking stove, lightweight tent, down sleeping bag, fleeces, quick-dry clothing, and a down jacket are all essential gear to be prepared for positive experiences in the backcountry.

  • If you put a tarp over the top of a non-waterproof tent (and it covers it) will it stay dry?

    I m thinking of buying a fairly cheap not-waterproof tent- good quality as far as i know, only 3 star, 4 star and 5 star reviews on amazon.co.uk (here it is: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Popamazing-Outd... and I already have a tarp, so if it covers the tent will it keep it dry? The tarp itself is waterproof, so i d assume so, but I wanted to check first. Supposedly the tent is okay for showers but not heavy rain, so if it drips I d assume it d be fine. What do you think?

    Have been searching for days, but got absolutely nothing. There is this really neat nature preserve behind my neighborhood called the Connemara Meadow Preserve. It is open to the public yet owned by an organization. There are many signs that prohibit bikes, motorized vehicles, open fires, etc. But nothing against camping. I even checked the website, and there is no rule against camping. Is it legal to camp there, or perhaps in a public park?

  • Where are some good places to camp 2-3 hours northeast of Kansas City? I don't want a "campsite", just a good area to find our own tent spot?

    I don't want a big campsite with RV's and "nice" areas to set up your tent. Just a forest where I can be away from people and set up my own tent for a couple nights. Thanks!
